KBRA Affirms AAA Rating for Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board Sales Tax Revenue Bonds

25 Jan 2024   |   New York


KBRA affirms the long-term rating of AAA with a Stable Outlook for the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board Sales Tax Revenue Bonds.

Key Credit Considerations

The rating was affirmed because of the following key credit considerations:

Credit Positives

  • Measure RR sales tax revenues provide ample coverage of sales tax bond maximum annual debt service and provide a substantial source of recurring financial support for capital and operations through FY 2051.
  • Favorable long-term demographic trends and high income level of population are supportive of growth and stability of sales tax revenues.
  • Limited potential for additional sales tax secured borrowing.

Credit Challenges

  • Sales tax revenues are sensitive to economic cycles and experienced some volatility following onset of the pandemic.

Rating Sensitivities

For Upgrade

  • Not applicable given AAA rating level.

For Downgrade

  • A significant decline in debt service coverage due to very large increases in sales tax bond leverage accompanied by significant and prolonged deterioration in the sales tax base.
